Does the eco drink daily multivitamin actually work?

Does the eco drink daily multivitamin actually work?

Works very well...: ...for the maker and seller. They get richer and you get poorer. There is no need for any multivitamin. If you have a specific vitamin deficiency, then take that vitamin or mineral. Multivitamins generally do not "work" on anything, and can cause serious problems if overused. Save your money and get a gym membership. Exercise has proven health benefits, while multivitamins do not. ...Read more

I take 50 mg of zinc daily along with a multi-vitamin. Some days, I get nauseous when I take them. What should I eat or drink with them?

Nausea -common: Nausea is a common side effect seen with any of zinc salts. 50 mg zinc daily plus a multivitamin (also contains zinc) increases the risk of nausea. Zinc is better absorped on an empty stomach (max daily 40-50 mg elemental zinc).Taking with food/plenty water may reduce nausea. If nausea persist discontinue zinc supplement if not prescribe by your doctor/otherwise talk with doctor. ...Read more

I drink a 11.5 Oz of v8 daily, can I still safely take a multi vitamin that has vitamin A in it, just don't want to overdose on vitamin A. Thank you.

I drink a 11.5 Oz of v8 daily, can I still safely take a multi vitamin that has vitamin A in it, just don't want to overdose on vitamin A. Thank you.

V8 has NO Vit A: V8 does not contain any vitamin A. Zero. Vit. A only comes from animal foods. V8 does have beta carotene, which our bodies convert to Vit A if needed, but there is no toxic dose of beta carotene. So drink all the V8 you want, and continue your multivitamin.

Calorie intake: You may not be eating enough calories. If you're not, your body will think it's in a state of starvation and hold on to any calories you do eat. You need to eat to lose weight, three health meals a day, plus healthy snacks in between. ...Read more

Is drinking ensure just as good as taking a multivitamin?

Is drinking ensure just as good as taking a multivitamin?

FAR BETTER OPTIONS: No! Ensure has 22 grams of sugar & has corn & soy from gmo sources & milk protein from cows given dangerous rbgh- you don't need to take these! If you prefer your vitamins in a drink there are far better choices, such as k-pax protein blend by orthomolecular products or mediclear by thorne research. You can find good vitamin/protein powders at health food stores &online.

Would it be acceptable to dissolve your multivitamin in water and drink it?

Would it be acceptable to dissolve your multivitamin in water and drink it?

SURE: I don't know if you'll like the taste. Swallowing pills is the ordinary way, isn'\t it? Maybe there's a family fight over swallowing pills. If so, eat a balanced diet, skip the pills and don't fight. Better for your health that way. ...Read more

Male - drinking organic SuperVeg shake everyday, is it ok to take my multivitamin tablet? If I'm taking too many vits what side effects will I notice?

Yes, very unlikely: Vitamin toxicity is rather rare. The only vits that tend to be toxic are A, E, D & B6. None of those are present in significant amounts in your shake. Generally one must take over 300, 000 iu/day of A for 6 months or more to become toxic (though high doses are dangerous if pregnant), over 1600 iu of E, 40, 000 or more iu of D & 250 mg of B6 for months to become toxic. No multivits have these levels. ...Read more

It's safe I drink folic acid 1, 000mcg and multivitamins thank you?

It's safe I drink folic acid 1, 000mcg and multivitamins thank you?

Yes for most but...: Folic acid is safe to take for most & there is no known toxic dose. However, about 20% of the population genetically have difficulty converting Folic Acid (a synthetic chemical) to the active l-5-mthf form (l-5-methyltretrahydofolate).If you have this genetic problem then high doses of Folic Acid may be hazardous & you should take the l-5-mthf form.

There are so many brands of multivitamins out there! How do I choose the right one? I drink a lot of water will that affect the effect of the vitamins?

Multivitamins: You're right, but there are some guideposts, such as whether or not natural vitamin e (mixed tocopherols and trienols) are used; content of vit. D (should be at least 1000iu); using beta-carotene rather than retinols, etc. For helpful info on how to select vitamins, see: http://www. Multivitaminguide.

I bought vitamins: calcium, iron, & garlic. Is it ok if I drink them once a day being that I bought them individually instead of the multivitamin?

OK, however...: It is fine to have those once a day but I don't believe they are a substitute for a multivitamin; despite the recent study claiming multivits don't work, a good quality multivit is wise for almost everyone to take ; folate (folic acid) is esp. Important for women who could become pregnant. All adults should take 5-8, 000 iu of vit d/day in fall ; winter; if you are taking calcium for bone health d ; k help more! ...Read more

Have occasional sharp cramp pains just down from big toe (side/bottom of left foot)for few days now, I drink heaps of water & take a multivitamin hlp

I am drinking muscle milk twice a day to replace meals and taking a multivitamin, fiber supplement, and triple tea fat burner. Why do I feel jittery?

I am drinking muscle milk twice a day to replace meals and taking a multivitamin, fiber supplement, and triple tea fat burner. Why do I feel jittery?

Stimulant; pyridoxin: Triple tea fat burner contains caffeine, which can cause jitteriness in some people, depending on the quantity. Muscle milk contains pyridoxine as do multivitamins; so you may be getting too much of this b vitamin, which is associated with peripheral neuropathy when too much is taken at a time. Try eliminating the multivitamin for a week or 2 to see if condition resolves. ...Read more

I was taking a multi vitamin, read that they were not good, so I stopped and now I drink a 12 Oz glass, a day. Should I take a multi vitamin?

Most people who: Eat a variety of foods with sufficient calories to meet their energy needs, a protein source & some fat in their diet DO NOT need any supplement at all. If you have a specific vitamin or mineral deficiency (or are at risk for this, e.g., pregnant women), supplements may be needed. Water of course is always necessary.

What are some healthy dairys? I eat healthy and a lot but only drink water and not many dairy foods. Oh and I take a multi vitamin.

No dairy is OK: You don't have to drink milk or eat dairy to be healthy. Lots of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts, and seeds are adequate. Water is the perfect drink, 4-6 glasses a day. Keep with your multi-vitamin. If you want to try greek yogurt that might be a dairy option for you, but not necessary. Better yet, look for good vegan recipes and resources. ...Read more

Doing a cleans, can I use miralax (polyethylene glycol) and then matamucul 30 min later? For 7-10 days? I take multi vitamin day and night and drink lots water?

Bowel clensing: I often use MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) 238 grams in 64 oz gatorade as a colonoscopy prep. This is used only for 1 day. I would not use this for 7-10 days as this could cause electrolyte disturbances. Metamucil can be used on a daily bases but make sure you maintain adequate hydration. ...Read more

It is false information that soil is depleted to the extent that your produce does not contain adequate vitamins. Produce would not grow without.
